Miniature wargaming is a form of wargaming in which players enact battles between opposing military forces that are represented by miniature physical models.
The use of physical models to represent military units is in contrast to other tabletop wargames that use abstract pieces such as counters or blocks, or computer wargames which use virtual models.
The primary benefit of using models is aesthetics, though in certain wargames the size and shape of the models can have practical consequences on how the match plays out.
Fantasy Stockart artworks are perfectly suited to illustrate a miniature (or table-top) war-game. Many of the available images have been designed with medieval military orders and weaponry in mind.
